I’ve gotta face it. Not all people like to eat meat for breakfast. I know I couldn’t even fathom eating steak or chicken or pork for breakfast when I first started zone then paleo. When I first started changing my diet, I had to make shakes every damn morning. Thinking about eating meat in the morning made me sick to my stomach.  But then I finally started just eating leftovers because running the blender at 4:30am is never fun, for anyone. My parents would have kicked me out…especially since I wasn’t paying rent when I lived with them after college. Actually, maybe they would have paid ME for living with them if I would have made shakes like this back then. Yep. I bet they would have.

This shake is made for those that hate breakfast in meat form. If you like to drink your breakfast because you’re “too busy”…mmmm hmmmm…I think that’s just you being lazy and not wanting to eat meat. Sweets are delicious, especially in the morning. I understand. But I drive a stick shift and still get away with eating leftover chicken and veggies while driving. Safe? No. Healthy? Yes. But I did drink this for lunch the other day and it was pretty damn filling. I wasn’t hungry for a good couple hours after. Hope you love it as much as I do!

While you’re reading this post, I will be in Boston. Well, probably flying there. Getting to Boston from Denver takes a bit. I’m kind of nervous. I get lost walking around the block. So going to place I have literally no clue where I am…well, that makes me nervous. I better pack A LOT of deodorant. And I actually had to go shopping for real people clothes. Turns out not all people who film cooking shows wear workout clothes. Weird, I know.

Hey have you ever watched My Drunken Kitchen? If you haven’t, you’re one of the few. Her videos have hit almost 2 million views on YouTube. TWO MILLION. Whoa. But if you’re easily offended…well…I’m not sure why you’re reading MY blog, but you’ll probably be offended by her. She gets drunk and cooks. It’s awesome. She’s pretty damn hilarious! Someday people might think my videos are cool, until then, I will just bore the few that fall unfortunately onto my YouTube station. JOKES ON YOU!

    Mmmmm I made this for breakfast this morning so I could use up my extra canned pumpkin and it was so good! The pumpkin and blueberries make a great combo. Sweet and savory at the same time.. I’ll be making this more often!
